I've read through the thread below and come across 2 solutions for connecting a device with ADB.

Android - Run/install/debug applications over WiFi?

The first is to use USB, and this isn't an option because the USB port is busted on my Droid Razr Maxx. The second is via wifi but using root permissions.. and I don't really want to root my phone.

Can't I use strict WiFi without root to set up ADB?

I don't believe you can. However, you can install applications from email attachments, websites which serve with the correct mime type, etc –  Chris Stratton Jan 31 at 5:53
